    Study: Healthy eating is privilege of the rich
    Aug 4`11 - A healthy diet is expensive and could make it difficult for Americans to meet new U.S. nutritional guidelines, according to a study published Thursday that says the government should do more to help consumers eat healthier.

    The rich usually don't plant gardens and tend to them.
    Gardens provide plenty of great healthy foods....potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, radishes, green beans, peas, corn, lettuce, cabbage, okra, squash...even watermelon. And they are not that expensive at all, to get a garden started. The rich probably would hire someone to tend to the damn thing tho, if they had one. That's prolly why they choose to go out and eat fish eggs and shit like that, let'em have that crap!

    I thought the rich were more leaning towards caviar and lobster, and foods such as that. You won't find those in a garden, and they are gross to me anyway ~LoL~
    Let the fuckers have their caviar.......

    It CAN BE more expensive to eat a healthy diet if one wants a diet that is not somewhat monotonous.

    Beans and oats are still pretty cheap. Potatos are still fairly cheap. Milk is still kinda cheap.

    The above is really all you need to eat a healthy diet.

    A boring diet, I'll admit, but one that is very healthy.

    Some meat is often cheap, too...if you're paying attention to meats on sale.

    It's veggies and fruit (expecially out of season) that tends to be rather expensive.

    Yup you got it, eating healthy costs $$$$$$, thats why alot of the people that are obese typically lower income or average income here in the US, cheap foods contain alot of fats.

    I had Limbag on in the car just before and according to the fat fuck it doesn't matter what you eat or do as longevity and good health are completely genetic.

    No, eating healthier is not "for the rich" and poor people do not eat worse because they lack money. Generally speaking, it's because frankly they tend to be dumber and/or lazier. They eat lots of fast food and pre-made, "processed" products because they're EASY, not cheaper, than eating healthy. Several examples of inexpensive healthier foods have already been noted above. And eating fast food and pre-made meals is easily more expensive than making your own.

    A classic example of why you can't assume something is correct just because "a study was done." Pablo Monsivais, an assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology and the School of Public Health at the University of Washington, is a moron. I'd love to know where he got that figure.
